, pennsylvania jersey back through virginia, west virginia. but as we look further west our next weather maker is beginning to develop. couple of storms flaring up through central missouri headed in through the southern part of illinois. that same storm system headed our way. we think it will bring some clouds tomorrow afternoon. best chance of rain tomorrow night into the overnight hours. that's actually good time. we don't think we'll get a lot of rain with this storm if we get the rain in the overnight hours it soaks into the ground a little better we could use it. in the meantime high pressure in control. >> that's going to keep dry weather dominating the forecast picture for 24 hours. few clouds build in early in the morning but most of the cloud cover holds out late in the day. rain knocking on our door to the west and then the scattered showers we hope will hold together as they come through the overnight thursday and clear out friday so the weekend with still looks absolutely picturesque and fantastic. out here in the tropics unbelievably active it is extremely rare to two major named
and down through southeast virginia. this is what is going to pivot up in our direction. we're on the warm unstable side of things. area of low pressure to our west will continue to wrap up and bring in drier winds once we head into the afternoon. there's a break in the cloud line, southwestern virginia, that swings through here by lunchtime and the afternoon we should get sun. overall the big pattern highlights this one big storm dominating the eastern seaboard, once that passes through there's another wave of low pressure that is going to catch the tail end of this boundary and ride back up the east coast. that is going to hit us pretty hard with more heavy rain and possible flooding as we head through thursday. we have a flood watch that extends on in through 8:00 this morning. and band of rain will be swinging its way through. during the morning hours and by this afternoon should be passing across the eastern shore and lifting to our north. we should get some dry air here and sunshine but still an isolated storm that could pop up as we head into the afternoon. look at the tail end of t

of it here. virginia, west virginia stayed sunny all day. low so far north and east did not generate any rain forest and next chance or hope for some rain brewing out in the texas panhandle now into the lower midwest. you can see some unsettled weather here. the system's going to kind of sit and spin for a day before it begins to push east as we go into the day tomorrow and should arrive early sunday morning like in the overnight hours, and last not least the mid part of our day sunday. we certainly do need those showers. forecast model keeps us generally just partly cloudy tonight and tomorrow, but then check it out. sunday morning will bring in the rain. some of those showers could linger through the afternoon. that would actually end up being a good thing. tropical storm igor strength evening in the tropics as well. 52 tonight. clouds increase late in the day but sunshine early and tomorrow night we're dropping down to about 62 with clouds on the increase. the best chance for rain again is going to be sunday early in the morning through about the early part of the afternoon. kelly. >> th

virginia and also into portions of virginia as of now. we can see a couple pop up as we go through the day into our area, the front will pass and things will improve. in the meantime, this is the big view. this is tropical depression hermine pushing the rain and flooding into northern and central texas and this will move into oklahoma and also into kansas as we go through the next several days. thursday looks good. showing now a few clouds across the area but i think that we'll see plenty of sunshine as we go into tomorrow and also into friday. don't let that model fool you. as we check out what's going on in terms of temperatures today, 87 degrees is what i'm forecasting. we could reach 90 maybe into baltimore, bwi. we could see warm conditions and windy. that's the big story for today as well. then tonight, oh boy do we drop off after the front passage, clear and cooler. as we roll into tomorrow, ah, breathe! 78 degrees, mostly sunny and pleasant. i like this forecast. do you, kim brown? >> that looks awesome. it's still warm enough to go swimming so we should try to take advantage for a
